Every quarter, Digi-Key partners-up with our good friends at Hackaday.io to come up with a contest. These contests are created to see how creative and innovative people can be in our industry. There was no exception last fall when we had our Circuit Sculpture contest. Judging these designs blew away all of our expectations. So, what do you do when you have countless images and projects that are masterpieces of art? Make a calendar! So, we did and here is a sneak peek. These designs are created from discrete components with no additional circuit boards. The wiring is typically copper to be used freeform. This leaves the design wide open for creative ideas and as you can see below, they did not disappoint.
Check out Hackaday often for the next contest and your chance to win great prizes. And who knows, maybe get your picture in a calendar!
